Week 39 2023


Many thanks for everyone who came and supported us in Sauveterre last Sunday.  The skies were blue, sun shining and plenty of people sharing their skills.

People of all ages had a go on the pottery wheel. if you want to try, give me a call and book a session in the studio in the Maison des Artisans, just across from the Tourist Office in Sauveterre de Guyenne.

Another week of sunshine ahead of us, so whatever you do in the Gironde and Dordogne regions, have a lovely week.
Best wishes,

Week 38 2023


It's action stations at the Association Arts Typiques in Sauveterre-de-Guyenne this weekend.  We're hosting the 6th Rencontre des Savoir-Faire

It's a great day out, 30 artisans will be hosting stands with demonstrations and explanations of the tips and techniques of their work, including, weavers, spinners, a potter in her wheel (no clues - it's me!), basket weaving, leatherwork, paper art, wood turning and a huge still distilling... not forgetting live music, entertainment, magic and juggling.

And if you're hungry, there are food truck, crepes, cakes and ice-cream.  I great day out for all - venez nombreux!

You can listen to a radio interview all about it here 

Whatever you do this weekend in the Gironde and Dordogne regions, have a great week - it's going to be sunny on Sunday.

Best wishes,

And finally...

We've been doing lots of vegetation printing into clay, with wonderful textures from leaves, flowers and seed heads.  This was rather a surprise when we opened up a project to find that the wild carrot had germinated!
